South Africa, with a current population of over 40 million people, faces a dire water future. The combined flow of all the rivers in the country makes up about 60% of that of the Tennessee River. Water is pumped from long distances and indirectly re-used many times. Discussion of running out of new sources of water in Cape Town has been ongoing for 50 years, and water reclamation is one path forward. The good news and the bad news for this region reflect similar challenges faced in other areas around the world.
